and a constructive energy that's been inspiring to all of us. here are just two quick examples. by the end of the first week, student leaders organized a candle light vigil on the old main lawn to show support for the victims of child sexual abuse. thousands of penn state students and community members joined together in the stillness of a cold, dark night to remind others that at the core of the issue we faced, were children who were gravely harmed. the following week, graduate students laura and stuart, mobilized the penn state community with the goal of raising awareness and funds for combating child abuse. working with the tight time line right before the lions were to play their first football game in the aftermath of the tragedy, laura and stuart organized the first annual blowout to represent the color of ribbons shown in support of child abuse awareness. this year was the second annual blue-out. together, they raised $126,000 for prevent child abuse pennsylvania and the pennsylvania coalition against rape. laura and stuart, please stand for a moment so we can recognize you.

in the checking account to keep it open because all of my energies have gone into congress. it is that experience that will help me understand how we can help small businesses look to the future and grow. it is that experience that will help me evaluate policy in washington and see how it will impact small businesses. we can't continue to add complexity and make it more difficult for small businesses to compete. we need to give them a hand up, help them export if we're going to add manufacturing. small businesses are going to lead the way. >> moderator: all right. i'm going to have to stop you. congressman dold, your record is supporting reasonable gun laws. how about supporting a federal ban on assault weapons? do o ld: my opponent says he does not have a business record because he was running for congress. well, he didn't have any clients or revenue in 2010, and in 2010 i was running for congress against dan seals, so it's just disingenuous again. >> moderator: quickly, mr. schneider? schneider: in 2010 i was looking to buy a business. this is an example of you not understanding spend -- entrep

're very grateful for, and i think symbolic of the incredible new energy that's developing in detroit. and i should also say that josh created a company calls eprize in 1999 here in detroit. it's been operating all this time. two weeks ago it sold for a nice exit. [applause] so here's the story of a local company that came from here, went all the way and, you know, he's done real well with that. meanwhile, he's invested in a ton of other companies. so i just want to start by asking you, steve, you know, when i told you about this, you immediately dropped it. why did you think techonomy detroit was a good idea? >> well, i think it's a great idea. i think it's great you're willing to shine a spotlight on detroit. it's not just about detroit, the story about entrepreneurship in america and how it is spread more broadly through the nation than we sometimes realize. obviously, silicon valley is the epicenter of enormous innovation. tremendous companies, it's exciting, it's something we're all proud of, but there are also a lot of companies all across the nation that don't get as much atten

into that. all i wanta say is there are active matter's going on with financial institutions, the energy sector is a concern because of what has happened in other places in the world. but when you look at cyber in terms of infrastructure, we've actually divided the nation's core critical infrastructure in the sector, and we know that there are different types of attacks and methodologies that could cause great damage so even as we see what is going on now, we have to be thinking proactively what could the next wave be and how could it occurred? >> even some that have been the last few days? >> well, you know, there are always nightmare scenarios in any type of disaster preparation. we are going through one now that is another major nightmare in that sense. cyber can be another and has a great potential to be so. that's why we have to really be looking at this issue on their return on investment. that's why we have to be thinking about the deterrence and how the economics work to go back to the general introductory comments and that's why it would be so helpful for the congress to act. >>

. the way to go through these issues is we have dodd-frank energy 20. ipg 20 there's broad agreement with respect to the derivatives market and it's been reemphasizing recommitted to buy the g20, including the united states over and over again. it's a value clarin, value transparency straight reporting. it's the value of collateral a thing and marketing positions and so forth. so given the very highest level agreement, we were tempter every country's individual regulatory regimes to legislative processes. one of the challenge is frankly the mismatch and timing. dodd-frank was pastor for anywhere in the world. the japanese are the closest behind us and we set about to do as congress has directed us to implement the regulatory regime. regulators are working together extremely well. it's a huge component of our job to try to coordinate and collaborate to the greatest extent possible, understanding we have different underlying legal regimes in different underlying processes. to give you specific examples, chairman gensler from the cftc and i have cohosted to very detailed working session

in order to meet our nations needs and that's energy and balance necessary to move forward and implement a new strategy. one of the issues i always have is when people want to do an evaluation in the army they look at brigade combat teams. how many do you have and how many t. need for the future? that is fundamental to what we do however people tend to forget many other parts about the army that are so critical to us supporting the joint force. 75% of their personal force of special operations forces is the army. we can't forget about that. we are responsive and we have to make sure we stay responsive to civil authorities and we have continued to make sure we have the right capability to respond and as you see what's going on today up in the northeast. we have provided a broad range of essential services today to combat and commanders and that includes intelligence, surveillance recognizance for off the geographical combatant commanders. would provide air and missile defense. geographical combatant commanders provide logistical support for all geographical combatant commanders. we provi
